Have you ever done a double take on a business's name?

I was thumbing through my mom's Southern Living magazine and saw an ad for Big Ass Fans. I had to do a double take on the name, lol. Sure, enough it actually said Big Ass Fans. I looked it up and they are true to their name.

  • When I lived in WI the first time, a coffee shop opened up and it's name was Beaner's. Needless to say that did not last and I think it is Bigby's or something. That was a big WTF were they thinking. I get coffee beans but Beaner's? Seriously?
